Well, we got a nice
(Diana and Jennifer have been naughty...but
There was a thud on the doorstep as a 'rare
time-warp' was delivered. We opened it and our heart rates
went up. What could possibly do this to two grown men?
OK, there's a few things, but it wasn't a
Porsche or tickets to the upcoming Steely Dan concert (already
got those!!) This was even better. Let me explain...
You see, Geoff and I are both tragic
Beatlemaniacs. So tragic in fact, that we even name our
studio hard drives after them. First, there was John,
Paul, George and Ringo, then we got onto their manager (Eppy)
then their producer (Sir George), then their roadies (Mal and
Neil)...I'm sure you get the picture. Our archive drives
are named after famous venues, like Candlestick Park.
We've recently installed 'eggman' and 'the fool' - from what
Dr Diana Walcutt and Dr Jennifer Fee (two of the
first three to join TCS), sent us this great thankyou gift.
Totally unnecessary but totally appreciated. Thankyou
ladies. Too cool. Diana and Jennifer have created a great
CD (more on that later) using "The Chill Sessions", and we get a
real kick out of being part of it.
It's fantastic getting to know you, so remember
- all you have to do is ask!!
here we are holding the rare recordings of their 1962 auditions
- just before they had their first hits.
We met Sir George Martin (legendary Beatles
producer) a few years back. That's us and our better
halves getting the photo- opp with him!!
I've been lucky enough to train with a couple of
engineers who were themselves trained by Sir George.
We kinda met Paul when he played at Sydney about
10 years ago...I asked for an autograph and he replied (kinda
looking in my direction) "I'll do it inside, just hand them to
my mate". Not that I remember it word for word or anything
So, from Beatle tragics, a big thanks to Diana
